Griff was lucky he caught her phone call to her family home and got to hear her voice whilst she is away in London - he'd just got to the door when the phone rang and Elsa (her sister) was busy with a girl guide.
He discusses the funeral of Vere (?) Hardy and the wake. He praises her red and white funeral flower sheaf she sent.

The Hallé librarian was "slightly agitated to know if we had the timp. part of Elgar op.36" which Griff then promised to drop off at the Town Hall for their rehearsal.
